WHEN March 29, 2012
WHERE 19 Washington Square North Part of "The Monument: 21st-Century Architecture in Abu Dhabi" WHO NYU Abu Dhabi Institute in New York Open to the Public

In 1971, two years after the foundation of the United Arab Emirates, the Federal National Council (FNC) was formed to represent the Emirati people and tasked with mission to examine and, if necessary, amend federal legislation. As part of the urban structure plan to optimize Abu Dhabi's development over the next two decades, a new complex will be built by the California-based firm Ehrlich Architects for the FNC. The building, to be located on the Corniche, a major hub for the city's cultural and civic event, pays tribute to Abu Dhabi's past and future by melding familiar Arabic design language with contemporary form and the latest technological advances in environmental sustainability. This program will consider both the artistic and functional design of the complex and how it will serve the day-to-day activities of the FNC.
